So we're back from our honeymoon. Nothing extravagant, just a week around the Ottawa area. Got to spend some quality time with our niece and nephew. Also managed a side trip out to Chateau Montebello for an evening. Pretty neat place. Pretty happy we scaled back our plans given Hurricane Sandy. It was what we needed, a break away from work and the stress of the wedding and we're very appreciative of my parents and my sister's family for putting up with us all week.
And then we came home yesterday. And there's a week's worth of drama waiting for us at the door. Superb. Not going to provide details. Everybody is fine, the cats are fine, the house is fine but I felt like I got punched in the gut. If I'd kept my mouth shut, everything would be tickety boo but I felt so let down I had to pick up the phone. And things have escalated beyond my comprehension. Looks like my brother's family and I won't be speaking for the foreseeable future. It's one of those things that a simple apology would put right to bed but things went nuclear so fast that doesn't seem to be an option now.
Blah. Anyways, my facebook account is now deleted if anybody was wondering. And I'll probably be scaling back this blog to a bare minimum. Baby pictures will show up here but probably not too many opinion pieces. But what's life without a little drama eh?
